Tribal traditional and seed conservation of natural resources
Visit a nearby tribal area Tanda. Speak to the people living in it to find out about their traditions and customs. Find out details about the flora and fauna found in the area. Learn about the trees and animals that are sacred to them, their festivals, their taboos, their traditional tales, their food habits, their family life ad about their social hierarchy and governance. Understand that all these re designed to conserve the environment and to share natural resources equally.
There are major differences between non-tribal and tribal family systems and cultures. We learn about them when we examine matters relating to birth, marriage, food habits, and traditions and sharing of resources in these two communities. Wile tribal people treat natural resources as community reserve and manage them with care, among the non-tribal; resources are used wastefully and ostentatiously.
An occasion to study
Form five groups in the class. Each group visits a wedding in five different communities. Collect information on how food is treated in the different communities. Especially observe how food is wasted on such occasions. Also, record how deafening the celebration gets to be because of loud music and bursting of crackers. Prepare a report; each group should present the report in the class.
